Well known and loved for its nightlife Alpe d’Huez truly offers something for all tastes. La Folie Douce (accessed from Marmottes/Les Bergers lift) kicks off at mid-afternoon and although relatively new (in its third year), it holds legendary status already, with DJ’s and live acts. Smithy’s Tavern, O Bar and O’Sharkeys all offer good food, drinks promos’ and show live sport. The ‘Free-ride Bar’ next to the Ice-rink has a ‘stock trading’ theme with TV screens showing constantly changing drink prices, pick the right time to buy your favourite tipple or alternatively try someone new at a market low price, whilst drinks trading is fun, it can get quite messy! After all of this you can move onto the Caves or Igloo Discotheques adjacent to Smithy’s Tavern just below the Ice Rink.

  • "Two nights here was fantastic. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, food in the restaurant was lovely, very modern design, and views were incredible from the balcony of the room. Would certainly recommend staying here." - Trip Advisor
  • "Our group loved the hotel, it has great casual bar areas, an excellent restaurant and the rooms were very spacious and well laid out with views of the Alpe. It was also within a short walk of a shopping area (tourist and supplies). Our group had dinner in the restaurant and a superb 3-course meal was served to us with friendliness and professionalism." - Trip Advisor
  • "We booked in here for 2 nights and I am sad we didn't stay longer! This hotel makes you feel so welcomed once arriving! It has the most amazing facilities! My husband booked this to do the famous Alpe d'Huez ride. Whilst he was off doing his ride. I enjoyed the amazing swimming pool and jacuzzi all to myself. The fitness centre they had was brand new and I enjoyed doing my 10kms runs in the air conditioning whilst looking out at the mountains." - Trip Advisor
